Allen, Daevid - Live 1963 (special)
Canterbury history lesson 101: Before Soft Machine and Caravan, there were the Wildeflowers. But even before the Wildeflowers there was the Daevid Allen Trio. This document of one of their very, very few performances, at the Marquee Club as part of Mike Horowitz's 'New Departures' series, features Daevid Allen, Hugh Hopper, Robert Wyatt and guest Mike Ratledge! As Daevid says in his notes, "Well, it was a start. Now it's a document." Also includes typically amusing and wry notes by Hugh.
Recorded with one mic on a home tape recorder, the sound is not even close to 'professional'. But the Canterbury scene starts here, really, so this is historically very important.
